HeadsUp! Child Development Center, Palo Alto (6/15)

Head Teacher Position (Palo Alto)
Compensation: Salary based on qualifications.
Employment Type: full-time
Immediate openings and for fall
Head teachers at HeadsUp! centers are professional classroom managers, responsible for the curriculum, parent liaison, and staff development for the full day the children are in the program. Head teachers have two hours per day of non-teaching time to accomplish their management duties as well as a discretionary room allowance and a training budget. 
For the head teacher position, candidates must have a B.A. degree, teaching experience, and a minimum of 12 units of early childhood education. A Montessori certificate from a recognized training program, while not required, is a plus. Exceptional abilities, talents, or experience are also highly desirable. A candidate must be eligible to work in the U.S. Head teachers earn a top salary based on qualifications, with vacation, sick leave, medical, dental, retirement, and many other benefits, including a discount on child care.


Teachers do not need all of the qualifications of head teachers, but the more they have, the higher their compensation. Candidates who are not available every day are needed as substitute teachers. The HeadsUp! Child Development Center in Palo Alto is on the frontage road of U.S. 101, between Oregon Expressway and San Antonio Road, immediately adjacent to Greer Park.

Licensed by the State of California, its large windows, open structure, spacious outdoor play area, and colorful equipment and materials invite children to explore, create, communicate, and enjoy.

The center offers a five-day-per-week, full-time learning and care program for infants,
toddlers/twos, and preschoolers (ages 0-6). It operates year round on a business calendar to accommodate working parents who want a learning focus in a loving environment for their children. The center's hours are 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

The learning program is a fusion of the HeadsUp! approach and the Montessori curriculum. Both employ structured early learning activities and materials. Both emphasize individual choice and responsibility. The infant and toddler/twos programs consist of HeadsUp! learning games and traditional activities led by center staff who are trained to encourage learning through play. The preschool program is directed by certified Montessori teachers who combine classic Montessori activities with creative activities, including art, music, and imaginative play.
